In The Spotlight...Kelly Martin

I want to thank Lynn for having me on her blog today! I’m doing a one day blog blitz to let you all know about my new book, SAINT SLOAN.


So… what is SLOAN about?  I’m so glad you asked J


When Sloan Bridges is seventeen years and three hundred, sixty-four days old, her dream of having a perfect birthday is shattered. Home alone after spending the afternoon working on a science project at the new boy’s house, Sloan is brutally attacked in her kitchen by a man she can’t recognize. The only clue she has to go on is what he whispers in her ear, “You deserve this.”

The police have one suspect—Aaron Hunter, older brother of ‘the new boy’, who picked Sloan up a few nights before as she ran from a party. Adamant that he didn’t do it, Aaron begs Sloan to believe him. For her part, Sloan doesn’t know who to trust. She never saw her attacker’s face, and when she does picture it, it’s Aaron’s face she sees standing over her.

Trying to move on is impossible with a former best friend who taunts her and gives her the moniker, “Saint Sloan”, an ex-boyfriend who doesn’t understand why she changed a few months before her attack, and Aaron’s brother, Ray, who makes Sloan smile but has a side she doesn’t understand.

With her attacker ready to strike again, Sloan has to figure out who would hurt her and stop him before he finishes what he started.

Happy birthday to her…



Sloan deals with complicated issues in heartwarming, heart wrenching, humours (at times) ways. Can Sloan move on from her attack? Can she pick between Ray and Aaron? Was Aaron really her attacker? What secret is Ray hiding? What other guys in Chapel Hill would want to hurt Sloan? And can Sloan hold on to her faith when she needs it most.
